Based on previous bad reviews, I somewhat agree, but have to say it is clean but very basic. Yes, the pool has been a garden for several years, and the toilet paper and walls are thin, and parking is difficult. But travelers to the Monterey area need to know several things: 1) Almost all lodging is very old. 2) Lodging... More

I was scheduled to stay 5 days for a retreat. The place was old and furnished cheap, but I was glad to find a reasonable rate in Monterey. When I entered the room, it was filled with a toxic bleach smell. Tried to open the window, but it was stuck. Called the office to help me open it. One of... More

Definitely no frills. Wish I had read your reviews before booking, hasty booking at last minute. No change from the bad reviews of 2014. Long black hairs in our bed and dirty looking sheets and pillowcases. Asked for clean sheets which the lady on front desk came and gave us, she then told us that the pillow cases were not... More

Its a place for only one night. Simple bedrooms, but the place is clean. Tha forniture is a bit old. Poor breakfast and not very gentle staff. Parking lot for all rooms. Good location, but not that extraordinary.

Thin walls, old beds with ugly spreads, stained blankets, towels you can read through, and single ply toilet paper at $160 a night. What more could you want? Well, if it is one of the last rooms around on a Saturday night you take it. The outside is charming but old, the rooms could be the same but they miss... More

We moved out of the room in the middle of the night after discovering a bedbug. We captured it and showed it to the front desk lady the next morning. She crushed it and said, "That wasn't a bedbug." No refund. Stay away. We had a much better experience at the Best Western a couple of blocks down the road.

They refused us to inspect the room before we paid for it and she told me that she would.'nt refund If we did not accept the room as it was presented at inspection. I told the receptionist that I accept the room if she could garuantee it was a clean room. However, when I was paying by my creditcard she... More

We spent two nights here and with the benefit of hindsight wished we had been able to stay somewhere else. The motor festival at Pebble Beach probably contributed to the lack of available accommodation when we were booking our trip. The website states that Padre Oaks has a pool; it, in fact, does not and has not had one for... More
